Software Center customization: Display custom tabs with Microsoft Edge WebView2 runtime

In my post about the MECM 2103 upgrade I made a list of my top 5 new features of MECM version 2103. One of these new features is Improved user experience and security with Software Center custom tabs. You can now use the Microsoft Edge WebView2 browser control in MECM version 2103 and with this control more websites should work with custom tabs without displaying script errors or security warnings. We had a lot of script errors before when using custom tabs to websites, but now these errors should be gone. In this post I will show you how you can enable custom tabs with Microsoft Edge WebView2 runtime.

Setting up Co-management MECM (SCCM) *Part 1*

A lot of company’s are still managing there devices on premise with domain joined devices and with MECM (SCCM). But with the pandemic most employees are working at home on there personal device or on a domain joined mobile device. Managing the domain joined devices that are being used at home is quite challenging. Off course you can deploy your applications and windows update with MECM and an active vpn connection.
But still how often do employees connect with the vpn application? If they don’t the device will become unsecure because of missing windows updates and missing application updates. You want these kind of devices to be updated and managed even without an active vpn connection. To be able to do this we can setup co-management in MECM. In this post I will show you how to setup co-management in MECM 2006.

Right Click Tools for MECM (SCCM)

You can do a lot of tasks with MECM, but the one thing that MECM doesn’t have are some good device management remote actions. MECM has got client notification that allows you to perform client actions on a collection or on a single device, but still the amount of actions and feedback of these actions are not really that great. I have been using an other great MECM 3rd party tool called RECAST Right Click Tools (RCT) and it is available as a free version or a payed Enterprise version. Off course the Enterprise version has got more actions/tools available but still the free version really makes the life of a system administrator or it support employee much easier.

Show specific scripts to MECM (SCCM) console users

A few days ago one of my colleagues asked me if we couldn’t let the IT helpdesk colleagues run scripts from the console by themselves. Great idea of course because a script can fix an issue and help a user really quick and the user will be helped a lot faster if the helpdesk employees can run the script(s) by themselves instead of having to call a colleague of a different IT team first who can run the scripts. But the console can have a lot of scripts, perhaps you don’t want the helpdesk to be able to run all the created scripts but only a selection of them. So in this post I will show you how to allow a specific script or scripts to be run by the helpdesk employees.
